    Our school uses Step-Up to Writing. To teach sentences to first graders, we have a format. Students have a picture on one corner (or draw the subject of the sentence), then there are three boxes. One says Noun (what or who is the sentence about?), the next one says describing word (or verb), and the last is finish your thought. The actual papers have this written in better language, but as I'm at home I can't recall it!!

    This format really seems to work, because it really limits and forces the kids to stay on topic and use specific words.
